Cuomo Says Trump Would Need an Army to Walk Down Streets of NYC
Donald Trump will do whatever it takes to get a photo-op. Back in June, has tear-gassed peaceful protesters so he could visit a Washington DC church. On Wednesday, he had a stand-in pose with him outside of a burned out Kenosha business after the current owner refused to appear with him.
Also on Wednesday, the President threatened to cut funding to city’s with large Liberal populations. When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was asked about Trump’s comments, he had a warning to issue to him. Cuomo said that if the President wanted to walk down the streets of New York like he did in Kenosha, he would “need an army.”
The Governor was mostly likely referring to Trump’s incredible unpopularity in his hometown. The President’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic certainly hasn’t helped things.
Cuomo told reporters, “He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him. He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him.”
Trump is defunding New York City.
Gov. Cuomo: “It’s cheap, it’s political, it’s gratuitous, and it’s illegal. New York City knows him for the joke that he is. The people who know him best like him least.”

The Governor continued, “It is more of the same from him. It’s political, it is gratuitous. And it’s illegal. But it is another attempt to kill New York City. I think it’s because he is from New York City and New York City rejected him, always.”
Later in the presser, Cuomo elaborated on the warning. “My comment about the president and bodyguards in New York City, all I’m saying is that he is persona non grata in New York City. And I think he knows that.”
